Festering Balloons are craftable, consumable Hardmode throwing weapons that can autofire. They drift upwards slightly and linger in the air, and are initially harmless. However, the user can right-click with the weapon to throw a weak dart, which deals minimal damage, pierces infinitely, and does not consume any additional balloons, as well as popping any thrown balloons that it contacts. Upon popping, the balloon will release 6 ichor droplets that shower the area below and linger on the ground for about 5 seconds, dealing damage and inflicting the Ichor debuff. The balloon will disappear after 10 seconds if it has not been popped.
